Abstract Share this page

Abstract This paper is a review of and commentary on the available literature dealing with myopia production in various types of monkeys and in tree shrews by experimental manipulations of their physical, visual, and/or bodily environments. The results from these studies are compared with hypotheses and models which purport to explain myopia development. Possible relations are also noted between conditions, created experimentally in myopic eyes of primates, and similar pathological states, clinically observed in certain human myopes.
